    AWS IoT Core

    End-to-end encryption is an amazing feature because we use IoT to connect to various devices in order to gather data/ stats in real-time. We're able to publish solutions with ease and at a faster rate because of AWS IoT Core. However, its inability to interact with other IoT tools is a big con that I would like them to improve upon.

    OutSystems

    Well suited for internal exposure of business processes (invoicing, API layer to other systems, customer maintenance etc), whether a UI is required or not.Not so well suited for full fledged web design. An OutSystems application must serve one particular business need, if gets too much functionalities and responsibilities it tends to get chaotic and complex.

    Pros

    AWS IoT Core

    • AWS IoT Core integrates power analytics and an AI solution for sensor data processing.
    • Great protocol support including HTTPs and MQTT required to connect resource constraint IoT devices to cloud
    • High security standards during data transmission
    • Scalability and a great user community
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OutSystems

    • Developing end user interfaces with ease and speed with a modern look and feel.
    • First class low code development to reduce time to market with visual programming
    • Their technical support team is fast and responsive. We've yet to have any issues they could not resolve.

    Cons

    AWS IoT Core

    • Ability to integrate with Ethercalc software solution
    • Ability to introduce NFC toolchains and systems which could be utilized in iot modular gateway solutions like drones
    • Ability to reduce latency as the solution scales is very much needed
    • Hybrid solution which can integrate other existing iot solutions into AWS iot core
    Manu Gupta | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OutSystems

    • Price – The licensing model of OutSystems is very expensive and not suitable for small scale developments. This is offset by the time to develop and stability for larger scale developments
    • Flexibility on PaaS version – The PaaS hosted version of OutSystems limits your flexibility to access the front end and backend database systems which can significantly restrict your options on high data volume developments or where anything requiring slightly out of the ordinary access is required
    • Same price for PaaS and self-hosted system. Licensing model dictates that you pay the same price even when you host the system on your own hardware which effectively means you pay more to manage the infrastructure yourself

    We are very happy with OutSystems and our developers deliver good work. OutSystems lets us build new software on a regulare (2 weekly) basis, which is highly flexible and adjustable. Even without very much experience, our developers manage to build usefull software, which is working a lot better than our previous (legacy) software.

    After adopting AWS IoT Core in our company it became clear that the whole platform was designed with usability in mind. It not only refers to IoT Core, but also applies to the remaining Amazon services. What we like the most is the fact that every phase from provisioning to maintaining provides great level of usability.

    I am really happy using OutSystems in my work. It gives me the opportunity to create good working software without having had very much IT-experience before. It also made me more interested in the background of IT and learning different languages.

    I give it this rating because the support is always there if we need help, but they aren't always able to help us with our problems and sometimes have to transfer us to another support technician. So overall, the support for AWS IoT is pretty good and I am very satisfied with it.

    The tech support is very reachable. Usually by [email] from but also by phone if needed. We had some difficulties at the start with understanding "what our machine was doing" under high performance load. After some good sessions understanding our needs they delivered good solutions for our problems we had in the beginning.

    In a large company, patiently and consistently work the behind the scenes politics with business and IT partners across the firm.
    This is transformational - you will need a solid set of key business partners to lock arms together to move forward.

    Alternatives Considered

    AWS IoT Core

    Azure IoT service provides more or less the same services as compared to AWS IoT core, however the costing of AWS lead us to continued usage of IoT core over Azure IoT services.Also, considering our existing technology stack is on AWS, it was a natural selection for better integration and ease of use.

    I tried to use WordPress with some success. Also looked at Joomla. But when I saw OutSystems I knew I had been wasting my time there. It takes you longer to get going with OutSystems - but even I as a novice realized immediately that Outsystems is simply in another league. Outsystems is powerful. (Can you compare WordPress and Joomla to Outsystems - I don't think so).

    Return on Investment

    AWS IoT Core

    • Gives confidence to prototype iot solutions across lots of devices in little time
    • Ability to meet requirements for managing a variety of communication protocols
    • Learning iot analytics and visualization for faster insights enablement
    • Onboarding devices and managing quickly without building inhouse solutions

    OutSystems

    • The ease of use of the OutSystems development process has been the biggest ROI for us. We have developed our Framework product and maintained/enhanced it with only 4 workers.
    • OutSystems has enhanced their product very significantly over the last 4 years. They have gone from a simple to use tool to a very simple to use sophisticated tool that covers the standard mainframe-based computing apps and the apps used on handheld mobile devices all using the same basic set of development tools.
